I think 2 bones per person is WAY LOW for military folks. I have done cooks for the Marines here at Quantico and 4-6 bones is an average. Trust me, they LOVE home cooking.
I've never done a reheat on ribs so I can't speak to that one.
That's a tough call. If you can handle it financially, I would take the hit. Good vibes, good feelings and good pub. And I can say from experience, those women and men will support you in the future so a little pain now will go a long way for future gigs. Just my 0.02$
Only reason I was thinking of 2 bones was the other rib guy from last year served 2 bones and toast as a side. I was thinking 2 bones and slaw. Maybe the Marines eat more.
Both the Marines and the Army will be off base this year.
I actually was not looking for a lot of profit. I will get getting some advertisement and exposure. We know that is first thing we all look for.
